ANTICIPATION VS. EXPECTATION OF RESULTS

Leaving Behind The Pressure

Leaving Behind The Pressure


Posted by Rosemary L.

Here goes my first blog …..

On a recent Polaris Global call Shane Krider talked about the distinction between anticipating a result and expecting a result. At first I had difficulty finding the difference or distinction between the two terms and how they relate to my business goals. The dictionary definitions are similar:
1. expectation – regard something as likely
2. anticipation – regard something as probable, expect, foresee

So, what is the distinction? After much thought I see the distinction as the feeling I attach to anticipation as opposed to the feeling I attach to expectation. This may be different for you, but for me this is how I see it:
1. when expecting a result I feel as if it is my right and the focus is on expecting the result to be perfectly as I have imagined it to be. The pressure I put on myself is too high.
2. when anticipating a result I have a sense of excitement running with it, I feel more relaxed and trust that it will work out. Somehow there is less pressure and more of a positive feeling around the outcome.

I am thankful to Shane for getting me thinking on this subject, and my challenge going forward is to consciously bring anticipation and those accompanying feelings of excitement and trust to whatever activity I am doing to achieve a result and leave behind the pressure of expecting perfect results.

What are your thoughts?

“IT MAKES ME TINGLY IN MY HEART…”

Tingly Two!

Tingly Two!


Posted by Kirsty M.

WARNING: Proud Mummy moment coming up…!

I picked up our son Pierce from school this afternoon & he’s been chosen as “Star of the Week” for his class! SO proud!

On the way home from school he explained how it felt: “Mum, when you’re the Star of the Week it makes you feel all tingly in your Heart. But when I’m not Star of the Week, I still feel tingly in my heart because I’m happy for the person that is the Star that week”.

This reminded me of “Phase 1” that we all go through in the early days in our business. When I first started consistently doing a 3 plan, of course things weren’t happening as fast as I wanted them to, and I would get SO frustrated hearing everyone else’s amazing results on the training calls, when I had little or nothing to announce. I remember the leaders saying “You need to celebrate everyone else’s Success as if it is your own”. What I love about our business is that we genuinely do celebrate each others’ success, as if it is our own. We are not in “competition” with each other. The more success that is created, the more there is to come. And if you’re having a moment of your own success not being where you want it to be, just remember that everyone else’s success is just the Universe showing the catalogue of availability to you again. Here’s what’s available, if you want to do the work for it.

I’m grateful that celebrating other people’s success, not getting jealous or sour about it, is something we’re able to pass on to our kids. It’s an important trait to have as a child & as an adult. Congrats EVERYONE on your Success here – it makes me tingly in my heart!

BOOK OF THE MONTH – THINK AND GROW RICH

Leadership Education and Personal Empowerment!

Leadership Education and Personal Empowerment!


Posted by Kirsty M.

How cool is it that in addition to our Beyond Freedom Evolution Curriculum, Shane Krider recommends books to us each month that compliment our Education!

I’m reading Think and Grow Rich this month as recommended & I LOVED this section that I found the other night:

“The more Important sources of Knowledge are:…
(e) Special Training Courses – through Night Schools and Home Study Schools in particular.”

Yay! Love that! Especially since we specialise in Home Study Leadership Education!

After years of doing my grades ahead of my age in High School I managed to fail my final year & struggled to repeat & graduate Year 12 the following year. By that stage University was out of the question for me, I was so keen to start earning a living & I could not sit still long enough to “study”!

It’s amazing to see the change within myself now that I study every single day. Finding the right type of Education for me was key. Leadership Education & Personal Empowerment was not taught at school, if it was, I may have been a lot more passionate about learning then!

I’m grateful to be able to teach these principles to our kids from such an early age, the things that have really helped me to define what to believe & what not to, and an endless list of tools for creating Success in all areas of life. Beyond Freedom Evolution has been my life saver & life changer in the last few years (literally). Embrace our flagship product folks, put yourself in the driver’s seat of your Life.

Who else is reading Think and Grow Rich this month?

IT’S NOT QUITTING, IT’S COURSE CORRECTING!

Course Correcting To Success!!

Course Correcting To Success!!


Posted by Kirsty M.

I’ve never seen myself as a Quitter, typically if I really want to achieve something & I want it bad enough, I’ll stick at it & make sure I achieve it.

So a while ago I started running. I was determined to be able to run for a half an hour and to love it. I downloaded an app on my iPhone, tried the treadmill & outdoor running, dangled a shiny new pair of running shoes in front of me, but still never got there. I discovered I just don’t love running. And I felt like a quitter. I didn’t like that feeling, I felt like I’d failed in another area of my life. L

I just completed the module in Beyond Freedom Evolution all about this topic (Action Book 3 “Course Changes vs Quitting”) & it says that if you “Course Correct” rather than label yourself as a “Quitter” and either find another way of achieving your Goal or remove the action if it’s not in alignment with your Goal, then you are still creating forward movement in the right direction.

Quitting is stopping going for the Goal completely. I realised that running for 30min wasn’t actually my goal, it was to have a regular form of exercise that I get a massive kick out of, in my schedule each week. Running is not it. I Course Corrected to Hot Yoga & I absolutely LOVE it.

Mission accomplished & I certainly don’t feel like a quitter anymore! I can also stop beating myself up for thinking I had failed at something, when really I am winning in the fitness area, even though I’m not running. I’m winning at what matters for me. What you have Course Corrected on lately to keep in alignment with your Goals?

I had a personal leadership development surge this week. I’m feeling super productive and energized so headed straight to my trusty Polaris Global Beyond Freedom Evolution curriculum.

A Second Look At Nursery Rhymes

Nursery Rhyme Time

Nursery Rhyme Time


Posted by Chris R.

Have you ever wondered why we are naturally negative in our outlook and where the violence in our society starts?
Could it perhaps be with the nursery rhymes that we had passed down to us and which we pass on to our children and grandchildren?
Think back to your favourite nursery rhymes and you’ll see what I mean.
In my case I started thinking about Little Bo Peep – the poor wee thing lost her sheep.
That’s pretty negative for both her and the sheep.
Oh, and poor Humpty Dumpty – look at the cracking demise that he suffered.
(Moral, never sit on a wall.)
What about that miserable old farmer’s wife who went wild with the carving knife and left us with three blind and tail-less mice.
And spare a thought for the people of London when their bridge fell down.
Must have been very inconvenient.
Anyone with arachnophobia will sympathise with Little Miss Muffet.
It must have been a bit disturbing to have the eight-legged intruder sit down beside you when your squaffing a Maccas.
Her boyfriend Jack wasn’t quite nimble enough when he jumped over the candle stick and burned his toe.
Thank heavens for Aloe Vera Gel!
This very same boy Jack copped a pretty rough trot.
He innocently climbed the hill with his significant other, Jill, and promptly tumbled down and broke his crown – must have been royalty.
Georgie Porgie on the other hand, didn’t get to have a significant other because all the girls ran away when he kissed them.
Poor lonely soul.
And I seem to recall something about a Goosey Goosey Gander who grabbed an old man by the leg and helped him down the stairs face first.
Nice type.
Then we have the indecisive mouse who spent his day running up and down the clock.
And if I had the choice I wouldn’t be joining the old woman who lived in the shoe – most uncomfortable I reckon.
Of course we also had the little piggy who cried all the way home, and the eencey weencey spider who had an unfortunate experience in the stormwater down-pipe.
Cock a doodle do tells us that the dame lost her shoe and the master, bless his soul, lost his fiddle stick.
Last (as best I can remember) we have this big guy who growled Fee Fie Foe Fum and boasted that he was going grind the bones of an Englishman and make bread.
What a scintillating and captivating mob of characters.
There are probably a lot more that I’ve forgotten and which you can remind me of.
You might also like to submit the positive nursery rhymes you know – the only two I could come up with were Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and the jolly old king who called for his fiddlers three.
I think it could be a great idea for the Polaris Global community to show their creativity and produce their own selection of new and positive nursery rhymes.

Here’s a couple of suggestions that just fell out of the sky…

The happy little boy just loved to sing
But he’d only do it when the bells would ring.
But when they rang
He just sang and sang
Making everybody want to
Find a bell to ring.

Or maybe…
You can dream of dragons,
You can dream of Kings,
Of cup cakes, icecream and other nice things.
Dreams can make you happy,
They’re a place to want to go
And when you’ve finished dreaming
You’ll have a smile from head to toe.

Pretty basic, I know, but maybe on the right track.
What do you reckon?
How about we hear your creative suggestions…

At the same time we maybe should be totally aware, at all times, of what we are presenting to our future generations.

How To Keep It Super Simple (KISS Principle)

Just a Little Kiss ...

Just a Little KISS ...


Posted by Fiona C.

When l heard Pauline going over KISS at Super Saturday last weekend it was crystal clear it’s funny because l know I’ve heard it said before? But this time KISS and the principle behind it was very clear for me this time, part of this was being present and attending the live events!

I’ve decided to make KISS my new north star.

Life itself can be made simple if we only learn to live by the KISS principal or defined as “Keep it super simple”. I’m sure many of us would laugh about this idea, especially if we are bombarded daily with the complexities of our roles or responsibilities, fast pace environment as well as our own struggles for self-fulfillment. But, if you spend some few minutes to ponder on this famous acronym KISS and give it a fair analysis, you will discover that it really makes sense and can be applied in real life scenarios. Let me give you an overview on how we can all manage to live under the influence of the KISS principle.

Imagine your daily tasks where you need to squeeze everything in one sitting. What do you feel? Are you already exhausted by just looking at all the duties you need to perform? What makes it even worse sometimes is your own thoughts whispering behind you telling you all these things seem quite hard to accomplish, and you end up worried all throughout the day. Now, if we apply the KISS principle, keep it super simple, there would be no chaos in the first place.

How is that possible? Its easy: keep it simple just do what you KNOW you have to do and success will follow. xxx

Fear, Polaris Global and Beyond Freedom Evolution

“All great accomplishments grow from the seed of a single moment of inspiration,” Shane Krider, Visionary and co-Founder of Polaris Global.

That is Beyond Freedom Evolution gold right there. When you build a success education curriculum based on golden philosophies like this, there’s no surprise why it is the best award-winning personal leadership development web-based program available.

Nothing changes, if nothing changes!

Nothing changes, if nothing changes!

Ever felt like you know what you have to do to get to that next goal, but you just can’t find the momentum to follow it through? You even have a to-do list but get stuck at #3? Me too. That’s when I grab for my trusty BFE volumes and start ploughing through. Or I click onto BFE Quick Start and have a revision course in the car. Making traffic productive… I think just earned a BFE gold star.

And what Beyond Freedom Evolution reminded me today, was the secret to great success is the simple courage to act as if we have nothing to lose.

Most of the time, we know what’s right for us. We can imagine it, almost feel it. But something is holding us back. Fear.

It’s fear that can prevent us from starting a new business venture, leaving a bad relationship, embarking on that great adventure. Fear of the unknown fights change. And we know nothing changes, if nothing changes.

I have re-learned some things about fear from BFE this week. That awesome feeling you get when you reach your goal, THAT is what will carry you through the fear and adversity that comes with change. And with BFE and Polaris Global’s support, we know we can achieve great success.

And totally kick fear’s butt!

Whoop!
